Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I love your hostesses"
Cons: "Crew on flight back to philly not as helpful"
Pros: "I would have appreciated that with ALL required paperwork, my stay at check in point would have lasted a little less than two hours I spent standing and waiting for a feedback."
Cons: "Updating clients and offering a seat if it’s a long wait could have improved the situation. It is on reception that the business gets its impression. Thanks."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic, the plane felt nicer than most other airlines, and the meals were great, even in coach"
Cons: "Crew is very slow in serving and removing spiked plates. Food menu is very limited and not even asking for Tea or coffee, very poor service, feedback alone they ask verbally and thank to be positive. Late boarding not proper announcements"
Cons: "Not a lot other than better choice of movies and music. Super airline as always"
Cons: "Power outage delayed the deboarding De boarding always done not at the terminal but to a bus"
Cons: "Check-in for ticket took 2 hours!"
Pros: "Everything was great, as the flight wasn't full, so we could relax"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient. Staff were polite and helpful."
Cons: "Food was okay, seats were less so. Not enough leg room."
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Crew were fine."
Cons: "Food was terrible."
Cons: "Mu luggage got broken"
Pros: "The comfort of the plane"
Cons: "The staff at Atlanta International Airport were terrible; not customer friendly. The supervisor at the check-in counter needs to be replaced. I am not one of your frequent flyers but travel internationally. However, based on his attitude I will think twice to select Qatar as my choice of airlines."
Pros: "Plenty legroom with Qatar. Food good."
Cons: "Everything good as usual"
Pros: "Regular A330 was substituted for a 787 dreamliner."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly"

Pros: "Crew is so helping and attentive , not like american or european carriers . Inflight dining options in economy was like premium economy"
Cons: "Plane a330-300 was little older and outdated in terms of entertainment system , but since this is short journey hence i dont mind"
Cons: "Food service was poor; food trays were arranged in a sloppy way; in fact the tray that came to me was not clean at all. First meal service from Doha to Washington (IAD) took nearly 2.5 hours to reach my home after the service started. The male attendants were sloppy, not well organized. When asked why it takes so long, the answer I got: "We were not prepared to meet the customer's preferences." But that does not excuse the long delay in serving row 36."
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "Went out of their way to be helpful"
Cons: "The seat from Jakarta to Doha, especially the head/neck holder was uncomfortoble. Too big and stiff and wasn’t on the right possition even though it is adjustable. One of the crew didn’t say anything, not even smile after she opened the curtain between bussiness and economy class at row J K L. She just walked away."
Pros: "Like before,Awesome experience provided by inflight crew, who attended to all your needs for this 4 hour long flight Made us feel really at home!"
Cons: "Service is always bad. This time from bag, all electronics have been stolen. It is 200$ worth things have been missing from my baggage."
Pros: "Stewards and Air hostess were great. The food was served well. The flight was kept clean and had a great entertainment system. Overall it was a great experience."
Pros: "QR528 landed in Chennai at 01.50 hrs IST on time was out of plane in 10 mins and then the endless wait for my baggage after immigration check, being a Indian citizen no issues but was able to collect my baggage at 3.02 hrs Doha - Chn flying time 3.50hrs, baggage collection 50 mins, its bizzare & absurd"
Cons: "One restroom was out of service"
Pros: "In-flight treatment"
Cons: "The seat"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."
Pros: "Philadelphia-Doha was excellent and noticeably better than Doha-Bangkok. ood, service, condition of aircraft were all better in the PHL-Doha leg. I have done the trip a few times now so it is not a fluke. Odd that the Doha food (and I usually get the local dishes) is very so-so. I usually only take a bite or two. Not appetizing. The Doha-BKK staff was less professional as well. The trays of the main meal were left with the passengers so long, we passengers started to bring our own trays to the galley. The plane out of Doha was very tight so passengers in economy have that sardine experience. The cup holders did not work although they would have been useful."
Pros: "crew servious and food quality."
Cons: "not so many Hollywood movie choices."
Pros: "Best service ever from the crew. Flight on time."
Pros: "I love the smiley flight attendant , especially for long distance flight. It would make it better trip to have smiley and helpful flight attendant. The meals provided by QA is good. it would be better with more fresh fruit on every meals."
Pros: "Wonderful airline! Very nice and friendly staff. I will fly with them again."
Pros: "I liked staff , boarding was organized food was not very good needs to be improved"
Pros: "Leg room was relatively better than the Doha to Atlanta leg."
Cons: "No goodie bags this time"
Pros: "clean airline, modern airplanes, good food, friendly service"
Cons: "Nothing not to like. Spacing between seats is a little tight for med-tall passengers. Food service was slow. few/Infrequent additional beverage & snack visits."
Pros: "just enough time in Doha between flights. Not too long not too short!"
Cons: "Asian vegetarian food can be of better quality."
Cons: "I planned a wonderful vacation for my birthday only to face a horrible experience. Not only was the flight uncomfortable, but my television did not work. There was a huge box underneath the seat in front of me which prevented me from stretching my legs outward. The television was on but the screen itself wasn't operating. I reached for the remote located in the armrest only to find the entire piece missing. Only the base was there. I asked the flight attendents three times if I can move to an empty seat and they said "give me a moment". The moment never came. I really expected more from this airline."
Cons: "The legroom is ok but the space between two seats is very tight and felt very cramped throughout."
Pros: "Spacious air craft with comfortable seats, crew was very friendly , and efficient"
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Pros: "Attention to detail and attentiveness of the staff was par excellence in the business class"
Pros: "food and courtesy of the staff"
Cons: "I have flown previously with Qatar and was not so impressed. Everything was great this trip up until my return to the United States. I should have suspected a problem when I was requested to change seat in order to assist a family who were in separate seats. Moving was difficult as the plane was being loaded. I managed to get to the seat offered to find someone sitting in it. To top it off the individual was wearing a surgical mask and carrying a large immigration bag. I requested a seat forward but I was denied and I later saw other passengers moved forward to seats that I was denied. If I had known that the flight would have been full of possibility sick immigrants I would have chosen another flight or airline. At certain times the smells were very bad. I felt as a ff member I should have been treated better or been made aware of possible health risks."
Pros: "No problems at all!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and helpful, the flight left on time and even arrived early"
Cons: "Seat 10H, the transition from coach to business class could be designed a little better so the service carts don't hit the seat occupant when they move between cabins"
Pros: "Overall I would highly recommend it. Excellent service, good food, good on board entertainment. Flight attendants and crew in general very polite and very helpful. Despite our delay in arriving at the airport (check in was done online in advance), the flight attendants accepted us for the trip. The whole process was extremely efficient, there was no delay in take off time and the suitcases arrived all on time to our destination. I really appreciated their help: we did have a medical emergency 3 hours prior to our arrival to the airport, hence the delay.."
Cons: "Everything went smoothly, I had no bad experience with this flight.."
Pros: "boarding was okay"
Cons: "BA operated flight. cannot compete with Qatar Airways, even if the ticket is a Qatar ticket."
Cons: "The crew was NOT friendly or helpful, and the dinner served was cold. The bread was even stale. The snacks and breakfast was fine, but it makes a difference when the only main meal is not good."

Cons: "My flight went well as there was no delay and no issues during the very long flight from Nairobi to Washington DC via Dubai."
Pros: "Nothing. Will never fly with emirates again"

Pros: "I had a great time. The best part was that my luggage reached on time!! Thank you!"

Pros: "Overall flight quality"
Cons: "Free wifi time can be increased to at least an hour and Food quality can be better"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Seating and entertainment was very good."

Cons: "Sound kept going of on movie"
Pros: "I liked everything! Excellent service. Great food, entertainment, and flight. Nothing went wrong. Thank you!"
Pros: "The large collection of movies and the comfy seats"
Pros: "The travel kits are much nicer now, appreciated the mattress"
Cons: "The boarding process in ORT was a horrible fail. they didn't announce the boarding of first/business and by the time I arrived at my seat there was almost no overhead room left because people from economy put there bags in the business area. The bathroom was definitely not cleaned enough, I went twice where the floor was soaked, the seat was wet and the sink full of toothpaste. I understand that every passenger should be responsible enough to clean up after themselves, but it was not an enjoyable experience. The crew was friendly enough, but it didnt feel like the personalized service experience that is usually the case (where they introduce themselves, explain the do not disturb sticker etc). Also I think there was something wrong with my seat because it didnt "lay flat" all the way."
Cons: "Good job!!"
Cons: "Breakfast could have been a bit better"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Boarding in Dubai was not according to zones and it was crowded"
Pros: "Clean cabin, polite Attendants, fast internet and great food and drinks."

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "No hotel accommodation given by Emirate"
Pros: "The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. The plane itself was clean and there were plenty of bathrooms. It was great to have two free meals, drinks and entertainment making a 10 hour flight go by faster. I love the eye masks and ear plugs to make sleeping on a plane easier. All around success and would fly again with them!"
Cons: "On the flight home the crew seemed a little confused who was in charge of my row. I had to go get myself the customs forms and a pen. Also the front of the plan was extremely hot compared to the back."
Pros: "The movie selections, and really nice lighting on board."
Cons: "During initial boarding at IAD our carry on baggage was ok. But boarding at Dubai there was carry-on baggage weight check and we had to pay additional $200. And then our baggage was then checked in. Seemed to be totally unethical."
Pros: "All the Air Team Crew were really friendly. On the first connection to from Nairobi to Dubai, I sat next to a fellow passenger who was nervous about the moderate turbulance that we hit. At the end of the flight, as we waited to disembark, a lovely Attendant stood next to us and we had the most warm friendly conversation I've ever had in all my years of flying. She made us feel like friends as she gave us an insight into her 'high flying' lifestyle while being professional. Unfortunately I can't remember her name as I would have loved to give her a special mention but she was so lovely."
Cons: "I didn't have much to dislike but I do recall not being woken up for a meal even though I had my sticker on the top of my chair. I was sitting on an aisle seat. Other than that, this was my first flight with emirates and it was truly awesome!"
Pros: "It was an enjoyable flight"
Cons: "Flight was 15 hours long. Vegetarian food is not provided. We were unable to select food options online before boarding."
Pros: "Movie options were good"

Pros: "Boarding procedure kept changing from flight to flight,keeping one guessing....Food(Asian Vegetarian was so so...served at random...."
Cons: "Luggage came on time."
Cons: "food was not served on time. crew was not attentive. didnt respond properly"
Pros: "Food was amazing crew was too helpful nice DDF overall flight was good will travel again"
Cons: "We kept a option for wheel chair but no one turned up that was disappointing."
Pros: "Enjoyed the flight and would rate the overall experience 4+. The only negative is the unduly long time for the luggage to reach the belt. You may like to look into this. Thanks."
Cons: "Had some problems with the touch screen entertainment system which meant I was somewhat limited in the program's I could view. Other passengers seemed to have a similar problem. Did not speak to crew member as i did not realize at the time that others had a problem. Thought it was just an issue for me."
Pros: "Great food and entertainment options on this flight. I appreciated that the flight crew asked all passengers to close the window drapes so we could all sleep. The chairs in economy seem to lay back further than other airlines which made it more comfortable."
Cons: "I would like to be upgraded to first class. :)"
Pros: "The plane was good and new. Larger plane and ride is a much more comfortable for the longer hauls. Overall good experience traveling."
Cons: "Veggie food, especially Asian vegetarian was unpalatable for the longer flight. Kids pretty much starved to then eat at the Dubai airport later."

Pros: "Too cramped -there was no order while boarding -seats were less spacious -Film was of poor quality and i had to switch off -the buttons were less user friendly"
Cons: "Was not able to get preferred choice of meal due to insufficient availability."
Pros: "Emirates defines economy class .. No one else comes close"
Pros: "Crew was great but at the airport they had us weight our carry on and then made us check it for 90 euro."
Cons: "Advertised October Pink products but did not have them for breast cancer support"
Pros: "Quick boarding, comfortable seating. Great food!"
Cons: "The seats and IFE were a bit outdated. Comfortable, but outdated. My family had issues with their screens and one had to use the remote as the touch screen was no longer functional."
Pros: "Air. France usual"
Cons: "No lights working on plane. Couldn't read or do work WiFi wasn't working either"
Pros: "Amazing crews!"
Pros: "Crew was awesome!!"
Cons: "I paid extra for the seat, but there was a metal box under the seat in front of me that curtailed my ability to stow my carry bag, and my leg room. I am very diappointed that I paid above the normal seat charge as if there was a premium to this seat, but in reality it was a sb par seat."
Cons: "If you have to change planes and Paris is your middle person. Leave at least 2-3 in between the two flights otherwise you might not make it."
Cons: "boarding wasn't good."
Cons: "Poor service. Terrible food. Aging aircraft. Terrible in-flight entertainment system. Really not good AirFrance."
Pros: "Good food and crew"
Cons: "Plane was old and seats were super tiny. Even an average guy would be uncomfortable in it. Can’t sit in one spot for longer than 15 min without getting sore."
Cons: "More chose in meals. I flew to and from within a week. All I had were chicken, chicken and chicken for snack too."
Cons: "Not really an Air France flight, AF not interested in taking care of their frequent fliers."
Cons: "Two hour delay meant we missed our connection. Then given a very late flight and had to haggle for ages to get earlier flight and told we should pay extra for it!"
Pros: "Over all pretty good for price."
Pros: "SFO - CDG (Air France) was a great journey in all respects. But the one major reason for that was, the middle seat was empty. I was so fresh after the journey, would definitely recommend this flight to anyone."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by atleast 45 mins and therefore had to rush at the CDG airport to catch the next flight."
Pros: "The size of the plane was nice. They had a good move selection. The vegan meal I was given was great."
Cons: "It was loud, cold, the food was just okay at least my vegan meal was the bomb but it would have been better had when we booked the flight it allowed me to also choose this option for my husband. Since he is vegan as well."
Pros: "1. Entertainment - Decent movie selection. I wished the angle of the screen in economy could be adjustable as well. Turkish Air does it better. Once the seat ahead of me reclines I dont have too much hope of saving my eyes from the awkward angles."
Cons: "1. Boarding - Learn from maybe Turkish Air who allocate people zones based on where you are seated in the plane. People seated all the way in the back should be allowed to board first and fill the plane back to front. Makes it less likely for you stand around waiting for people as well people all the way in the back making contact with every possible human already seated in the aisles. 2. Comfort - Window seats are too hot, middle aisle seats are too cold 3. Thankfully they do have halal offering. Now if they will even let me choose that I am allergic to seafood. Glad for the chicken. Nothing to boast about."
Pros: "Boarding this large plane went relatively quickly and orderly."
Cons: "Seats were tight and got a bit uncomfortable. This was a long flight. Could use a much better cushion."
Pros: "We flew with our special needs child without requesting any particular accommodations except for gluten free meals. The gate staff and flight crew identified him and allowed us special bordering that facilitated the process. That act of kindness is a rare experience on our part. Thank you Air France staff!"
Cons: "Leg space."
Pros: "Food has improved a lot on business class. Meals are more creative."
Cons: "Water bottles not given out unless ou ask for it. Crew needs to better trained with how to handle business class..."

Cons: "As I said in my rating, seating was cramped. Food was mediocre. Crew was pleasant."
Pros: "Food and service was good and price was acceptable"
Cons: "Very long route"
Pros: "Sometimes you get surprised, with this specific flight, we had an excellent young and perfect cabin crew. Thanks, Joon!"
Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "We got socked with 40 Euro fees for our carry on plus personal item being 2 lbs over. The biggest problem is they were picking and choosing which bags they weighed. 10 people behind us and before us got in without incident. Plane wasn’t even half full so they were deliberately trying to make more $."
Cons: "Took very long from landing/ arrival until baggage could be collected. Priority luggage came out last!"
Pros: "Everything was very prefect and would love to fly again."
Pros: "Punctual, great food in Premium Economy, friendly crew."

Cons: "only there were del;ay at JFK"
Pros: "Leg room is bigger than average, there is also a foot step which helps you to relax."
Cons: "There must be lice on the plane, either from the customer or on the seats. Got bitten 6 times on the leg and butt!!! And this is not the first time hearing same story, Air France definitely needs to disinfect the plane more thoroughly. Media center is outdated, touch screen isn’t working well, felt being punched in head every time when ppl behind you tries to touch the screen!"
Cons: "Air France lost my luggage and they can't find it in the computer system."
Pros: "That it was a night flight"
Cons: "No airconditioning, no food choice, no space."
Pros: "Cheap aircraft, not even headsets"
Cons: "Dirty aircraft, I expect more when I pay a lot"
Cons: "The food is awful The entertainment, i.e. movie selection, is not very good and doesn't change very much. The seats are not comfortable and my chair did not recline."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful Helpful, pleasant, capable"
Cons: "Waiting for late passengers & their luggage"
Pros: "Panamá airport is a disaster, unorganized and dirty"
Cons: "Panamá airport"
Pros: "The crew was very comfortable speaking two languages and friendly. They also had air conditioning! This was great because it was strangely hot in Paris and we were sweating profusely. And our last air france experience we were so hot and it was aweful. Even though it was like an hour and a half flight they still served us sandwiches ,really good."
Pros: "The food was great. Very filling and hot foods were hot and cooked thoroughly. For our 8 hour flight we were served 2 meals and snacks and plenty of hot drinks which was nice.The entertainment was great got to watch movies and play games and also learn language through games."
Cons: "It was very hot in there probably hotter than it should be. Not much air flow I was sweating the whole flight. Because of this I couldn't sleep it was kinda miserable not gonna lie."
Pros: "Crew are efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Very small plane."
Pros: "It was as expected."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit tedious because we had to first board a bus to take us to the airplane."
Pros: "Boeing 777 had a lot of space. Good legroom. Timely departure and arrival, hassle free, safe trip all the way. Enjoyed the red wine; very delicious!"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline. The entertainment unit was very difficult to dislodge and raise to use (We were in the front). Movies were kind of older ones but I had reading to do so entertainment wasn't that important."
Pros: "There were 4 of us flying from Atlanta, there was a great amount of leg room, tvs were nice, remote control for the tv fit into the seat, the way the plane was laid out, the 4 of us sat in a middle row, which meant no window seat (which my sister was disappointed), dinner options were great, wine was complementary"
Cons: "My only problem was that there wasn't any air flow and until someone told them how hot they think it is, it was a very sweaty situation. I couldn't sleep because of how hot it was and I didn't think to tell the crew because I didn't know they would care."
Pros: "Clean plane, efficient crew, food OK. Boarding was organized"
Cons: "No entertainment and no power plug to charge devices."

Pros: "is nice flay"
Cons: "they are ok"
Cons: "My Baggiage is extremely damaged which is so disgusting and there is no way to report it"
Cons: "The main meal was ok but that was it. If you can't do food to a standard them dint do it at all. A piece of fruit would have been better"
Pros: "Only process of boarding."
Cons: "Everything else was not close to other comparative airlines. Food was horrible. Just FYI, cottage cheese is not the only food for Asian vegetarians. There actually are many other options. Not enough options for entertainment. The seats for economy class were way too crammed. With the growth in technology, it would be helpful to have a USB port to charge. ELL phones."
Pros: "No hassle at airport check in. All good"
Cons: "Warm beer"
Pros: "Food was excellent."
Pros: "Customs and immigration check out at AbuDabi"
Cons: "delay flight from LAX to Abhu Dhabu- not enough time- rushing and inconvinenet aat old airport"
Pros: "The flight attendants."
Cons: "There was a medical emergency on board, so bathrooms did not get the necessary attention. Had to ask for toilet paper for two different bathrooms. Transferring to this flight as a NIGHTMARE. The boarding gate was a long way from the arrival gate. Went through an endless maze. Went through two security check points. At both check points I was sent for pat down. At the first there were five other women who were waiting for pat down. All white women. Discrimination???? At the second security, I had not even passed through the detector and the officer was waving me to get a pat down. At that point I started laughing. Next automated preclearance for immigration, then had to wait in line to talk to immigration officer. It is a miracle that I made it to the flight on time. Passport and boarding pass checked minimum of 6 times in this process. On arrival in Los Angeles, there was a bus ride to the terminal for luggage pick up. My husband was at the terminal I normally come to, I had no way to contact him (Indian sim), no change for pay phone. A fellow passenger was merciful and let me use her phone send husband messages and eventually we met up. I would not use Eithad for India to USA for this reason only. The security and immigration preclearance sucks."
Pros: "Etihad is always my first choice in aircraft, in-flight service and ground staff. I've flown them all, and Etihad is a best-in-class..."

Pros: "Almost everything. Lovely staff....good seats.....plenty of recent movie options. Made 7 hours fly by!"
Pros: "The food, the entertainment, the fact that the airline staff could speak English and that some of them were actually helpful"
Cons: "The upkeep of the airline, some of the airline staff to treat all passengers as one as I noticed more than an unusual amount of passengers were favoured over one another. A minimum flight of 5 hours was served with just the one meal. We were served lunch at 930 am on one flight. The observations in economy aren't as important as business class. Only if we could all afford to travel on business class."
Pros: "I had a whole row to myself! Fantastic service, very friendly crew, and great movie selection."
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Horrible food and beverage service as mentioned above"
Pros: "I liked the speed of the journey"
Cons: "delayed flight passenger management of frustrated customers no compensation no apologies care of customers after long delay"
Cons: "The toilet configuration is not good. It is cramped and the sink positioing makes It difficult to wash your teeth."
Pros: "Both of our flight were very comfortable. They gave us pillows, blankets and great food even in economy."
Cons: "The second flight took off quite a bit late but we did make up some of the time"
Pros: "The head flight attendant went the extra mile to ensure we got aisle seats together after our seats had been changed since we checked in. Very happy that she went the extra mile to pull it off. Movies and food were very good."
Cons: "We didn't like that our confirmed aisle seat had been switched since we checked in and were confirmed. It was uncomfortable for a while trying to solve this with the ground staff, but they put the message through and I mentioned it again and it was resolved in the end."
Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Crew was a bit harsh."
Pros: "Very professional and accommodating crew on board. The Abu Dhabi lounge was large and looked very beautiful with it's appointments, but it was also packed with people (late time of day, I know), noisy with men pacing around shouting on their cell phone headsets, and I wasn't aware of the many services they had like the spa, no one informed me when I checked in. I understand this airport has a lot of business and first class travelers from all countries, but they need to better organize the lounge into designated "quiet areas" for people like me where cell phone use isn't permitted, family areas, where the kids can run around screaming unimpeded like they were, and also direct newcomers into areas where there are less passengers so you can find a place to sit & grab food without wandering around this cavernous place looking for a place of respite"
Cons: "The experience of transferring through the Abu Dhabi airport was a little hellish--very hot (I know it's the ME in summer), long lines, I was patted down in a cabin by a security office because of the underwires in my bra, which I was cool with, but my carry on luggage was kept outside the cabin area with my passport and money with people swarming through in lines. Not cool. I've probably never had an international transport experience like this, outside of Cuba where they pulled me aside and interrogated me by agents even though I had a visa and had documentation I was presenting at an education conference at the government state hotel, (and I'm Panamanian American, I speak Spanish, maybe that's why they though I was a scientist/spy). This airport definitely needs more basic staff and better organization. But I'd have to say this wasn't any worse-- other than the heat--- of any US or European transfer experience I've had in the last 10 years. Lounge staff in Abu Dhabi were kind of jerks compared to other airports, they were very stand offish (like they couldn't be bothered to help you, or maybe it was my Canadian/American accent)."

Pros: "Nothing special old Aircraft"
Cons: "Flight delayed for more than a hour & hand luggage asked us to handover at the time of boarding , very sad"
Cons: "Cabin luggage with sensitive/delicate items were forced to be checked in for 2nd leg of the journey. Cabin luggage upon retrieval at destination was scratched/dirty and one glass item inside was broken. Recommend Etihad provides complimentary luggage wrapping to prevent such issues. Additionally, crew was unable to manage noisy kids, and a request for ear plugs was ignored. Recommend Etihad provide affected travelers with ear plugs to manage the noise, and that the crew undergo training to better manage problematic parents w/kids."
Pros: "Nothing specific..."
Cons: "I know this sector is can be tough on the crew... But got a very routine service with not much eye contact... For my coffee was given one sugar/creamer... Before I could ask for another the steward moved away... Didnt bother to check if I am fine...., Also, they ran out of water around landing time :( Entertainment was not available until after 10 or 15 mins take off and cut 10 mins before landing... Felt like second class..."
Pros: "The flight was over book and toke long time to solve the problem, but they toke a care of care of me very well."
Cons: "Was all good, but the crew could be a little bit more attention on the passenger."
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats great. Good great."
Cons: "Angled seats don't allow viewing out the window"
Pros: "Staff at check-in were so courteous and helpful. Cabin crew were professional, very friendly, helpful and elegant. I enjoyed the inflight entertainment."
Cons: "WiFi was what I expected. Food is constrained by what is possible on aircraft. Why no small bottles of wine, only individual glasses(cupfuls)?"
Pros: "Air crew was pleasant and polite. Only silver lining."
Cons: "Flight got held up due to bad weather at ABU and had to spend a few hours in the shabby airport before being boarded on a later flight that landed at 3:40 AM, instead of original 8:40 PM!!! Jet lag compounded due to screwed up timing. had to wait till dawn till family could pick me up. Etihad didn't load all my luggage due to transfer - so had to stand in line to file a report after a 34 h flight! Very unhappy about that, even though luggage arrived later on same day.. Boarding process was chaotic. Can you get Indians to form a line by zones, as all other airlines do??? Finally, I was cramped into a non reclining window exit row seat even though I had explicitly stated in my Etihad preferences that I preferred aisle. A most uncomfortable journey after a long wait. Almost decided I'll never fly your airline again. Just almost..."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "BAG got damaged and no response from anybody. Staff not there . Kindly help me."
